The Govt's Winter Plan & Adult Social Care

Following the latest Government announcements, Stephen Chandler, ADASS President, said:

"As the Government prepares to publish its winter plan, adult social care must be central to it and not an afterthought. We hope that the plan incorporates the recommendations of the excellent work led by David Pearson and involving colleagues across the sector which reviewed last year’s plan.

"Last year we also sought £1.5bn to build up care at home and £1.5bn to give unpaid carers breaks to keep them going. This year will be even more important in dealing with the current workforce crisis.
